Why would you stay in Surprise in the first place, except to be close to the Sun City area? Surprise is a joke of a town, and raising hotel tax rates to stick it to visitors just shows you the priorities here in arizona - always stick it to someone else, especially visitors, typical az mentality.

I think Surprise should follow suit with Oakland, CA and open up a marijuana super store. Maybe all of AZ.

The moron natives out here still rag about how the "snow-birds" ruin "their" beautiful state. As you know from living here, the people here are brain dead and without commen sense; is it any wonder the big shot politicians in phoenix can't figure out a way to right the ship, except to tax groceries?
